An apple a day keeps the doctor away, while a gourmet entree hand delivered to the doctor every day keeps her from telling the insurance company that your bones are made of sidewalk chalk. Increase your culinary capital with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale bistro fare at Terrace in the Sky in Harlem.
From its glass-enclosed-rooftop vantage point, Terrace in the Sky sides executive chef Jason Potanovich's gourmet bistro fare with striking views of Manhattan. Four hundred varieties of wine complement 10 seasonally adjusted dinner appetizers for a practically endless number of opening ensembles, like sequined jumpsuits at an ABBA revival tour. Spiced spoked octopus a la plancha places white nectarines and squid-ink balsamic vinaigrette within tentacles' grasp ($17) before carnaroli risotto steamrolls duck confit, acorn squash, wild mushrooms, and porcini oil across tongue pavement ($31). Lunchers can feast on organic chicken breast with bacon lardons, cipollini onions, braised kale, and ultra-creamy potato purée ($22), and brunchers can choose any two entrees to hybridize a fixed-price meal ($35).
The dizzying array of red, white, and sparkling vintages, coupled with the elegant dining hall and exquisite panoramic views, provides the ideal setting for intimate evenings sharing indulgent desserts and much-needed respite from relentlessly pantsless neighbors.
